This one was marked as the most popular Penny Jordan romance on Goodreads, when I checked some time ago, so I was really excited about reading it. Well, I can only say, what a disappointment. This has got to be the worst Jordan offering I have ever read (and look back at my profile – I’ve read a lot).

So the (awful) premise is this: Lucianna (“Luce”/“Luc” – depending on who is speaking to her) is a bit of a tomboy after being raised by her father and brothers. She’s also an incredibly gifted car
If you love Cinderella stories and a hero who is deeply, crazy, hopelessly in love with a blind in denial heroine who thinks she is in love with another man you will love this book. Very passionate and romantic read!
I really enjoyed this one. It was very fun and just the right amount fire. My only complaint is why does the woman always have to be irrationally prickly? Other than that it was a fun romp for any romance reader.

I loved this book. I am sucker for Cinderella stories and this was a great one. It was great watching Luci come into her own and recognize her femininity. Great light reading material.

I loved that the hero, Jake, already loved Lucianna the way she was before her physical makeover happened. He's secretly loved her for years and has always found her desirable, tomboyish ways and all. He only agreed to help her because 1) he was asked to by her sister-in-law 2) he wanted her to be happy and if she believed that enhancing her looks allowed her to win the man of her choice then he was going to do it and 3) he wanted her to gain full power over her femininity.

The story is slow to take off, but gets going mid-read. Lucianna is a bit of a tomboy by virtue of being brought up in an all male household. She is inhibited and not at all body-image confident after overhearing various conversations growing up (ahem... girl listening in on her brothers' macho posturing conversations about females).
Jake loves her from afar, and somehow ends up tutoring her in the art of being more womanly to get a guy she supposedly wants (who turns out to be a total ass - as i

God damn awful and too sexist. One of the reasons why I hate the kind of dirt being dished out by these romance books. Why god why can't a lady just be herself? Why does she need a man to validate her existence?
This is an older romance, so it was a little dated but I thought it was cute overall. The term "whilst" was used...A LOT, and it got a bit annoying after a while. Otherwise, it was exactly like I expect a Harlequin Romance to be: a pleasant reading experience that doesn't tax my brain to enjoy.
